Charles II: Art & PowerThis "lavish" exhibition of "baroque bling" (The Times) is "a tremendous narration of history through objects and images" (The Guardian). It opens with Charles I, "white-faced at the trial that ended in his execution, and concludes with a gallery of masterpieces by Titian, Veronese, Lorenzo Lotto and others". In the opulent seeing of The Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace, Charles II: Art and Power shows the rich material world of Charles II's court and the role of the arts in the re-establishment of the Stuart monarchy.
